    I meant for that pattern and of date and time. I didnt mean that particular string. for example for the pattern
    (\d+)\:(\d+) (\d+)\/(\d+)\/(\d+)
    how do I triple the space between the time and date ?

      The code I posted will work on any string. It finds the first space and replaces it with three spaces.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
        The code you gave is not working I tried this
        if ($_ =~ m/(\d+)\:(\d+) (\d+)\/(\d+)\/(\d+)/ ){ my $string = "(\d+)\:(\d+) (\d+)\/(\d+)\/(\d+)"; my $new = $string =~ s/ / /; print "new $new "; }
